We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.

But you have to do what you dream of doing even while you’re afraid.

The fastest way to break the cycle of perfectionism and become a fearless mother is to give up the idea of doing it perfectly – indeed to embrace uncertainty and imperfection.

Increasingly, staying in the middle class – let alone aspiring to become middle class – is becoming a game of chance.
Arianna Huffington

It’s no longer an exaggeration to say that middle-class Americans are an endangered species.

The middle class is teetering on the brink of collapse just as surely as AIG was in the fall of 2009 – only this time, it’s not just one giant insurance company (and its banking counterparties) facing disaster, it’s tens of millions of hardworking Americans who played by the rules.
